That doesn't sound right... are you sure there isn't a pin hole leak in the plastic tubing somewhere, or it's spraying a fine mist from one of the connections and coating everything? I can see a little condensation, but not enough to cause a major problem. Odd.

Only things I can think of are either put a drip tray under the unit, or somehow warm up the water that's coming into the unit. Is the water coming directly into the unit from a pipe that's exposed to outside air or something? With how slow RO units push water through, it seems like the water would heat up enough from being in the house to not cause that big of a problem.
